Good on you, Lee!

(and everyone else too)
Thanks for the list. I enjoy being kept in the loop about award winners. I have corresponded with Tim Maleeny who is modest about his literary talent. His second novel, Beating the Babushka, I enjoyed just as much as his first. I know that he is working on a third.
I'm in the midst of reading Laura Lippman's What the Dead Know. Fantastic book, highly recommend it. Her characters are mindblowing.

Thanks, Daniel. I'm really honored and humbled to be included on a list with such a star-studded group of authors. This nomination is truly an honor. I've told everyone, I simply can't stop smiling.
I can imagine how thrilled you are, Lee! Congrats.
Thanks, Naomi. Yep, thrilled is a good description!
